I saw similar threads in other states/cities and I thought it would be a good idea if we had one of our own among the locals in SA. After all, there were how many CD Meet & Greets? (sorry I couldn't attend any of them ) Maybe this could be a neat alternative way that is also friendly to our schedules for all of us to get to know each other better as well.

Post whatever about whatever you want!

OK, I'll start. This was in a thread a long time ago, so I guess I could go dig it up, but I don't recall it being specifically about this topic: Geocaching. I am looking to get into this as a hobby, and for some outdoor exercise. I've already signed up on geocaching.com, so that I can search for local geocaches. There is also a ton of info about the various GPS trackers out there. That's where my questions come in. There's so many out there! At Wallyworld today, I looked in the electronics dept. and saw a Tomtom for $148, regularly $248, but the kid working that dept sent me to Sporting Goods when I told him what I wanted it for. Over there they had a handheld Garmin (? I think?) and it looked entirely suitable. If anyone is into this, could you DM me with any info you think I'd find pertinent? Muggles can ignore!

This should be an interesting thread! Great idea, weather nerd!

Thanks Sapphire

While I know very little about Geocaching, I think it sounds like an exciting game. KABB FOX 29 had something on it on Youtube:

LOL, just noticing that on page one right now, we have 1 dieting thread, and no less than 7 food/restaurant threads. And many other threads that start out as one thing, and end up as a food thread.

OK, let's get this thread going!

I'd stick with the TomTom. Even though the price is only $150, it's a great piece of equipment.. which used to cost $300 a couple months ago and I paid $200 for it a couple months ago when the price dropped. Thought that was going to be the ultimate deal.. but anyhow, it's very responsive and fast. That's important

Thanks, rd. I know the TomTom is good for use in the vehicle, but do you have an opinion as to whether it would be useful for outdoors--battery life, ease of carrying, etc?

I'd love to learn what our members do for a living - names of companies or other specifics aren't necessary. Maybe this:

1.What do you do?

2. Are you happy doing it?

3. If not, what would you want to do?

4. Are you formally trained/educated in your field?


I'll start:

1. Teacher

2. love kids, not so sure about the job anymore

3. either real estate (not to get rich, just b/c it interests me), or working with children or children's programs in another capacity (not the public schools)

4. I have a B.A. and would like to pursue a Masters (not sure in what yet)

Oh and Sapphire, I love your byline -can't wait to see the movie!
